Tonnellerie Radoux Inc. uses the tightest-grain oak selected from different forests in the center of France and the Vosges areas. The same choice of grain applies to its Eastern European oak selection. Radoux’s American Oak barrels are sourced from the highest quality white oak from Missouri, Minnesota, and the Appalachian regions. Radoux offers French, Eastern European and American Oak barrels, puncheons, tank/casks, as well as Pronektar Oak Alternatives (powder, granules, chips, segments and staves).
Radoux’s Research and Development team is dedicated to producing new toasting techniques to maximize the oak’s beneficial influence on a particular varietal of wine. In 2005, Radoux introduced the Evolution Toast, which results in a wider range of aromas and more respect of the fruit, producing a more fruit-forward wine with increased roundness and mouth feel. In 2006, Radoux is introducing a new toasting for white wines, “Special Vin Blanc”, which has been developed and tested in the Burgundy Region of France.
Each product is produced to meet a wine’s and winemaker’s distinctive style, and personalized service is reinforced by strict quality control to ensure consistency.
